How many kids can you babysit in Idaho falls Idaho without a license?

The state of Idaho has a 1- 6 ratio for a daycare centers that are in a home. Therefore, I believe you could babysit up to 5 before your babysitting is considered a daycare and needs to be licensed.

There are exceptions to the rule.

The age of the babysitter makes a big difference and experience.

Infants, special needs or handicapped children may require a smaller ratio. Especially infants since they require a lot of attention. I would require a 1-2 ratio.

Even if you are babysitting without a license it is best that you have had babysitting training, child CPR and first aid.
